Culinary activities

Whether you’re just getting started or experienced in the kitchen, Camp MasterChef helps you improve your culinary skills. Our classes are designed for everyone… from beginner to the expert considering each kid ability.

We have designed a brand-new 2021 culinary program that will take campers all around the world and, each week, we will be adding a Master Class to learn additional skills.

The two-week session includes 2 different programs, plus a special cooking activity during the weekend that could consist on a BBQ, where campers could cook their own dinner after buying their own ingredients at a local market or a field trip.

At Camp MasterChef, campers learn a new cooking concept every day. We teach you the theory and how to apply it in the kitchen.

Classes are organized by age, with a maximum of 15 campers per group.

Team competitions

In the spirit of MasterChef, each day includes a team cooking competition. On the first day of camp, you meet your team members for the week. Your goal is to earn the most points by winning cooking competitions and daily challenges. Along the way, you work with a dedicated Team Captain, who motivates and guides you.

Sports and Fun

There’s more to Camp MasterChef than cooking — we value exercise, sports, and having fun.

Each day includes dedicated time for swimming or playing sports. After dinner, the fun continues with a theme party. Camp counselors prepare a different theme for each night, taking you on an extraordinary adventure with your new friends.

Camp MasterChef fosters a healthy lifestyle for our campers. We host talks and activities to promote healthy habits.

During supervised free time, campers can express their creativity through painting, dancing drawing, and crafts.
